Joan of Arcadia - The Second Season
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
New Arcadia arrivals include Will's controlling boss, Lucy (Annie Potts), Joan's "crazy camp" friend, Judith (Sprague Grayden), and enigmatic do-gooder Ryan (Wentworth Miller, Prison Break), who shares Joan's gift. Despite critical kudos and respectable ratings, Joan of Arcadia wasn't picked up for a third season, but its spirit lives on in such disparate shows as Medium, in which a woman communicates with the dead, and My Name Is Earl, in which a man goes around doing good deeds. This six-disc set features commentary by creator Barbara Hall, producer James Hayman, and writer Stephen Nathan. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Joan of Arcadia is one of my favorite TV shows (better than The Simpsons, Jeopardy, Joey (the Friends spin-off, remember?) and Law & Order).
Great even if you haven't seen Season 1.
My g/f will be ecstatic about getting this for Xmas, and it was far too long a wait for this 2nd season release. Shame on the Network "geniuses" and the garbage they foist upon us.
As far as I can tell, none of the extras in this release will provide a clue as to how the second season cliffhanger might have concluded. When a program with such a huge and diverse audience (CBS admitted it spanned age demographics, which made it difficult to draw the advertising they were looking for) is canceled with an unfinished story line, you would expect the DVD release to bring it to some sort of conclusion - maybe by a storyboard or writer/producer interviews or something!
If you never saw JOA when it originally aired, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality, values and brilliant acting found in both seasons. the show inspired - you can watch this with your teens without concern.
It took a long time to get this out on DVD - at least a year and a half after the last episode. This has probably hurt the sales dramatically - people have moved on since then. Really good programming - the kind your kids can watch and that doesn't offend your sensibilities - is hard to find. This one should have been a long-running series. It seems to me that when you reach a large, broad demographic, you've got a hit, but CBS was looking to target a certain age group - short-term thinking in my book. Too bad for all of us.
Shame on CBS... Shame on them...
